Dude. I really can't believe it's taken me this long to post this amazing piece of music history. This is a compilation of 1-minute long radio commercials for St. Ides Malt Liquor, performed by a virtual who's-who of early 90's gangster rap artists. Ice Cube, Scarface, The Wu-Tang Clan, EPMD, Rakim, Yo-Yo, and MC Eiht are but a few of the hip hop masterminds present here, proving that petty spats and gang warfare mean nothing in the face of a great cause (such as promoting the best malt liquor around: The motherfuckin' CROOKED 'I'!!!). These guys rallied together despite their differences to produce a truly kick-ass album, something for young and old, black and white, drunk and sober to enjoy TOGETHER. Transcending its obvious value as a mere novelty album, every song presented here HITS HARD, HITS FAST, then GETS THE FUCK OUT.

Check out the track listing below:

1. King Tee "St. Ides"

Hahahahahahahah. I been sitting in this one daunted by the task of writing something clever and not at all racist about it, but now I don't have to. It's fucking awful and pretty much a clearcut example of black-on-black crime.
